School Spotlight — Chu Hsi Tseng

Preschool Director Chu Hsi Tseng began at CAIS in the summer of 2020 during the height of pandemic uncertainty. Not only did she oversee the transition to 100% immersion in Preschool and leading the first classes back to in-person learning, she did so while only being able to meet with her new administrative colleagues via Zoom.

Despite the many curve balls thrown her way, she has approached every challenge and opportunity with her signature big heart and keen intellect. She explains, “I’m currently doing my dream job!
